This remarkable book is the culmination of an eight-year joint effort between Michael Hedges and John Stropes, a leading teacher and author of other critically acclaimed finger-style guitar books. "I first talked with Michael Hedges about working with him to produce a book of his music in 1986," said Stropes. "Our dream was to do it right. The challenge was to create a guitar book that would give the complete picture the composer's musical intent and a complete technical description for performers. It was clear that this would require an extended vocabulary for notation, expanded technologies for transcription and music typesetting and a new vision in music publishing." The transcriptions contained in Michael Hedges/Rhythm, Sonority, Silence were developed from videotapes of Michael Hedges recorded between 1983 and 1992. The videotapes were made at concerts, master classes, lectures, interviews and special sessions. These special sessions used three cameras (left-hand, right-hand and wide shot) running independent, time-coded tape. Working from these videotapes and using half-speed video and half-speed audio, a rough draft of a transcription was made. Then, discussions with Michael Hedges explicated the composer's intentions. Next, this revised draft of the transcription was compared with the original Windham Hill audio recording to arrive at an exact correspondence. Finally, the material was tested using intermediate and advanced students to ensure that the notation was clear and thorough, and study notes were added to clarify any remaining ambiguities. In addition to the music, this book includes a moving automusicalbiography interspersed with rare and historic photos, original essays on composition, electronics and tunings, a complete discography and tunings database for all of Michael's recorded works.
